  1. Locking

    Locking is a village and civil parish in Somerset, England. It is a predominantly quiet residential area of North Somerset, 3.5 miles south east of the town of Weston-super-Mare and houses a large farming contingent. As well as a pub and church the village has a village hall, school, a post office, two hairdressers, a Chinese takeaway, a reptile shop and petrol service station comprising car sales and a mechanical workshop. The village gave its name to RAF Locking, which has now closed and proposals are under consideration for an employment and residential development for the site that could deliver 25 hectare of employment space and up to 1,800 new homes. In July 2011, North Somerset Council gave planning permission for the £50 million LeisureDome to be constructed on the site. It will contain a 210-metre indoor ski slope, other leisure facilities and a number of shops and restaurants.

Examples of locking in a Sentence

  1. Security Rich Payne:

    They’ll be deployed into a locking mechanism that is inside our vehicles and they will only be deployed if there is a situation where they need to be deployed.

  2. H.W. Mann:

    One critical point related to stress vs relaxation, with regards to consciousness, is that stress takes us out of our conscious mind, and into our sub-conscious mind. A fast reactionary mode necessary for survival, but locking us into our programming, pre-programming not of this moment, but of the past, a mere shadow of life, not a living moment. By proper meditation, we shift our physical and mental state from the state of disease, to a state of healing, and collectively we do this on a planetary scale. We also shift from being governed by the sub-conscious, to a conscious state of mind. When we do this collectively, we complete the collective mind.

  3. Eyal Lifshitz:

    We are making sure we are locking in capital for longer periods of time, and from providers that we trust and we know are going to be around.

  4. Vera Ezimora:

    I do not think that being isolated is necessarily a sign that a person could be dangerous in the future, having guns should also not mean that one day, they will be used in a mass murder, but if you have a person with a development disorder or mental illness living at home with you, I would think that locking away deadly weapons like guns should be a priority.

  5. Randy Forbes:

    What you will have done is take enormous capability off the table if you go with the requirements that they are locking in now. What you will be locking into is something that is a little more than a high-class surveillance vehicle that will fly over our aircraft carriers for 20 to 30 years down the road, many people feel we need to have something that is more integrated into the air wing if we are going to keep our carriers viable and if we are going to get through A2/AD defenses (anti-access/area-denial).
